On July 13th, 2019, our Worthy Field Agent Paul Morassutti hosted a financial planning seminar at Saint Joan of Arc Parish. This event is hopefully one of many of its kind and had a fantastic turnout. There were undoubtedly many lessons learned by all who attended. Thank you so much to all our speakers!

The newly installed officers for the coming year are:
Grand Knight: Mike Harkleroad
Deputy Grand Knight: Roberto Piccione
Chaplain: Fr. Ray Sacca
Chancellor: Chris Phillips
Financial Secretary: Vern Howard
Treasurer: Richard Sweeney
Warden: Dave Maco
Recorder: Don Bierman
Advocate: Vince Cavalieri

The memorable evening concluded with remarks from new Grand Knight Mike Harkleroad who spoke of his goals to increase membership and advancement within the Knights. District Deputy Tom McCaffrey also spoke emphasizing the challenges of the year ahead and urged his brother Knights to continue evangelizing their faith through continued works of charitable service for the church and community.

Everyone is invited to join the Knights choir to sing at Fr. Ray's 40th Jubilee mass as a priest on June 15th at the 5:30pm mass at St. Joan. This is a milestone event for Fr. Ray whom we are very fortunate to have as our pastor. He has expressed his wish for all the choirs in our parish to sing at his special mass celebration. No previous choir experience is necessary. There will be 5 practice opportunities between now and the date of the event on June 15th. See schedule below. Our choir director Janet is asking that those planning to sing attend at least 3 practice sessions. The regular choirs have a chronic dearth of male singers and, by way of disclosure, I won't be attending due to a prior family reunion weekend that was scheduled almost a year ago and falls on the same weekend as the Anniversary mass. Anyhow, choir practice is held at 7pm either in the church or in classroom 1 depending on availability. Thanks in advance for your support. Let me know if you have any questions.
We have total of FIVE rehearsal opportunities remaining in which to prepare music for this day:
Wednesday, May 29 – 7:00pm
Thursday, May 30 – 7:00pm
Wednesday, June 5 – 7:00pm
Thursday, June 6 – 7:00pm
Wednesday,June 12 – 7:00pm FINAL REHEARSAL - everyone who wishes to sing must be at this rehearsal so we can assign seating.
God bless, Vic

From the CCOP Facebook Page:
"It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our Pastor, Rev. Paul D. Minnihan. He succumbed to cancer this afternoon, February 24. Heavenly Father, please welcome with open arms your brother and servant to your eternal kingdom. Once we know the funeral plans, we will let everyone in the parish know. Please keep Fr. Paul’s family in your prayers."
Fr. Paul has been a frequent visitor to Saint Joan of Arc for public reconciliation. Though he was from a different parish, he was a friend and mentor to many of us. We offer the deepest of condolences to the Catholic Community of Pleasanton and Fr. Paul's family. We will keep you in our prayers.
